This publication is the 7th in a series of statistical summaries 
on Florida vegetable crops. It is the purpose of this publication to 
present a summary of the many reports that were issued currently during 
the season, together with historical data for comparative purposes. 
This presentation, with its six preceeding volumes, was made possible 
through the joint efforts of the Bureau of Agricultural Econojpiics, 
U. S. Department of Agriculture and the Agricultural Economics Depart- 
ment, of the Agricultural Experiment Stations, University of Florida. 
Through this cooperative agreement it has been possible to expand the 
statistical coverage of the Department to include county production and 
production costs in specified areas. Shipment data Is again presented, 
most of which is traced to its county of origin. Per acre cost of pro- 
duction and returns were made by A, H. Spurlock, Associate Economist and 
Tallmadge Bergen, Assistant Economist of the University of Florida Agri- 
cultural Experimaht Stations. Donald L. Brooke, viho has made this study 
for Volumes III - VI, is out of State on a leave of absence. 



ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS 



Yie gratefully acknowledge our indebtedness to each person and 
organization contributing to the development of these data. Their 
cooperation makes these reports possible.. Viith the exception of ship- 
ment information, the data contained, in this report are estimates and 
ar^ based on reports by, and interviews with growers, shippers, market- 
•ing associations and organizations, seedsmen, railroad representatives, 
canners and other proces.sors, the, Agricultural Extension Service through 
its county agricultural agents, the Federal-State Inspection and Market 
News Services, the Florida State Marketing Bureau, the Florida State 
Marketing Board, the Produjction and. Marketing Administration and other 
well informed sources. , • , . •.

Each crop carries the following sequence of data by' season; Name of crop - 
Season; Acres for harvest, by Counties; Acreage, production and value - State 
summary; Acreage, and production 1)y counties and areas, 1956-51; Shipping data; Per' 
acre costs and returns. Crops that harvest in more than one season are' coMbined in' 
one total grouping classified, as "A^l" and placed before the breakdovm by seasonal 
groupings. Yellow piiges are placed mainly ag dividers between crops with per acre 
cost and returns on or adjacent thereto, '

DEFINITIONS AND EXPLANATIONS ' ' 

SEASONAL GROUPINGS In .ord;er that . cqiApet.itive production within the State of 
Florida and the United States may be classified on a National basis under reasonably 
uniform groups, we have established a National pattern which is based on the mo'st 
active :harve st ipg .■ pe riod s . .,.The.s€ ma_-|or groups are I'lINTER, SPRING, SUMt^lER and FALL, 
The I'VINTER .group . includes the mojiths of January, February and -March;- SPRING in- 
cludes April, May and June; SLTldMER includes July,, August and September (Florida . 
carries no official summer commercial crop9); and FALL includes October, November* 
and December. These periods are not rigidly fixed and the harvesting period for a 
particular grouping may extend over into the preceding or following group. However, 
in-e^rrangj.jig ,our glata we have followe4 the.se groupings in so far as it is practical. 
For example-, it has ..been., considered practical to carry cabbage, cauliflower, 
escarole , l-ettuce green peag. ^nd strawberries as one season crops, designating them 
"WINTER since the volui^e production, is harvested generally during January, February 
and March. Since some systematic order of grouping is necessary it is deemed best 
for all concerned to handle our classifications on a National basis even though 
they may not alway? agree w^th some local designations now in use. 

PLANTED ACREAGE --). -Th? ;(^lefinition for planted acreage is based on^a "loss of crop" 
concept. Estimates of planted acre s for any seasonal grouping consist of acres for 
harvest (see next page ) during tha-^. particular seasonal group, plus any acreage 
planted for harvest during the season, but which was lost or destroyed and did not 
produce a crop in the season under consideration. If the acreage is lost and not 
replanted it is counted as planted. If it is lost but replanted for harvest in the 
same season as the, original acreage would have been harvested, the acreage replanted 
.is Qpt considered as additional . acreage planted. . However, if the acreage lost is ■ 
replanted for harvest in a^ later geason,: it is considered as, planted for' both 
seasons and as acres for harvest only for the latter season. " 

ACRES FOR HARVEST - This is considered as being all acreage from which a crop 
could have been harvested had economic conditions (prices, available labor, etc.) 
warranted the harvest. It includes mature acreage on which the harvest was post- 



poned or delayed too long due to economic reasons and the production lost thereby. 
Acreage which produces such low yields or poor quality that the crop is not worth 
picking at any reasonable price is considered as crop failure and is not included 
in the acreage for harvest. Unharvested acreage which produces yields which would 
be harvested at reasonable prices is included in acreage for harvest. 

ECONOMIC ABAHDOI'lffiKT - This category includes mature production not harvested be- 
cause of economic factors, such as low prices, shortage of labor, etc. Such loss 
of production includes quantities left in fields partially harvested as well as pro- 
duction on acreage abandoned for economic reasons. Acreage abandoned at any stage 
of grovrbh be.fore maturity will be considered as loss of acreage or crop failure 
rather than .€ conomic abandonment of production. 

YIELD - Yield reffirs to tot^il production of merchantable quality produced on an 
acre, basis and. may include some unharvested production left in fields for economic 
reasons. 

PRODUCTION - Total production represents the yield times (X) the acres for harvest. 
Production of value is that part of the production which was harvested and sold or 
utilized while . in the fresh state and does not include economic abandonment. 

UI'IIT VALUE OR PRICE - All prices used in this report are on an F.O.B, basis or its 
equivalent, less selling charges. In the case of some commodities which are sold 
in units other than the one listed, these units are converted into the equivalent of 
the ones used. 

TOTAL VALUE - The total value is the price per unit times (X) the production of 
value. 

CAIT'TED OR PROCESSED ACREAGE AND PRODUCTION - The acreage of vegetables in Florida 
planted solely for canning and processing' purposes during the period covered by this 
publication- has been confined principally to cucumbers for pickles. The acreages of 
beans and tomatoes, the principal crops canned, are planted primarily for fresh 
market but during recent years substantial quantities have been canned. In order to 
conform to the National pattern for recording the fresh and processed production of 
these t^iio crops, \ye have shown the equivalent acreage on which this processed pro- 
duction v/ould have been grovm and listed the remainder as acreage grown for fresh 
market production. The .tables shov/ing acreage and production by counties and areas 
under snap beans, tomatoes and cucumbers include that grown for processing as well 
as for fresh market* 

COSTS- Av:D; RETURNS PER ACRE IN SELECTED AREAS IN FLORIDA - These tables represent 
the summarization of grower r"ecords^or. estimates of costs and returns per acre from 
several vegetable crops in the -major producing areas of Florida for the 1950-51 
season as compiled by the Florida Agricultural Experiment Stations. Both costs and 
returns are computed on the basis of acreage harvested and weather losses or econom- 
ic abandonment have not been considered. In so far as possible, gromng and har- 
vesting costs have been, separated and labor items excluded from costs of materials. 

MIXED CAR MOVEI^NT - Total shipments of produce in mixed cars are shown by months 
on page 113. The se data include those equivalent cars shovim in our regular shipment 
data under each specific crop carried in this publication.
